Being lonely means you are isolated or companionless, but god isn't going to give you someone if it will hinder a relationship with him. he won't give you someone just because you're lonely and tired of waiting. it doesn't work this way.
if he's going to give you someone who is ready then you, too, must be ready. if you're waiting and praying for the right one and god's best, then god will give you his best when you're ready for him/her.
and remember, god is also providing you for someone else. he's presenting you as his best too, so he's going to make sure you're not lonely and just wanting someone to fill in a gap. god won't mess someone else up like that. he's not going to allow your hastiness to be someone's downfall. my advice: get ready. stop telling god that you're ready and prepare for his best. he'll bring them in your life in his timing....not yours. caption by @dearfuturehim#keytohappiness#beintentional
Update & progress check: so i finally got on a scale earlier this week and i’ve lost 50 pounds in a little under a month. yes, you read that right. i didn’t think it was possible either but it is. i don’t have any good before pictures but you’d be amazed with what a side by side would look like. the difference in my weight loss this time is that i’m doing it in the healthiest way possible. most of you know i’ve struggled with addiction for years now, and before i’d use drugs to lose weight. i don’t have to do that now. lots of intense exercise, healthier eating habits, a more positive mindset, and a work ethic i didn’t even know i had all have played a part. the last picture is today of me in an outfit i couldn’t even bring myself to publicly wear a month ago. i want to say thank you to my best friend, boyfriend, and gym partner @juddjudah for motivating me inside the gym and out. thank you for pushing me to be my best and believing in me. i’ve reached levels in weeks that i haven’t reached ever before and it has all been with your help. i’m the luckiest woman in the world to have you ❤️. i forgot how fun it is to put in hard work and actually exercise. sometimes i go to the gym when i’m bored 😂 that would’ve never happened a month ago. if anyone is having difficulty motivating themselves, or wants to know how we do it...feel free to message either one of us, we’re always ready to help. here’s to more wins and blessings, we’re only getting started 💪🏻. #weightloss#fitness#gymrat#progress#update#weightlossjourney#blessings#gains#positivity
I’m beautiful even when i don’t think it. i’m beautiful even when i don’t see it. i’m beautiful no matter how many people don’t say it. i’m beautiful and i don’t even care if you know it. im beautiful because my soul is kind. i’m beautiful which is why i don’t have to try so hard all the time to show it. 📸

it being the weekend actually means something to me right now and i don’t want to miss it or forget it. i’ve never been able to bask in the joy of it being #friday because that’s when i would do the most chocolate fountain jobs working with my mom in high school, and it’s also when @pinstripesbbb would start to get really busy which meant more work and longer hours. while in school i had to work at the hospital as a tech on the weekends because week days were just too busy. i’ve always worked weekends and probably always will seeing as how hospitals (specifically intensive care units) don’t close on the weekends ❗️ .
i’m not working as a nurse yet and my part time hours are slow.
i’m currently studying for the nclex.
that being said - i’m at a point where i’m not completely booked with plans every single day. i actually have days where i can ask myself, “what should i do today?” and i have multiple choices ! this weekend it’s off to wisconsin with friends ❄️ .
so many blessings and thoughts to go with them. i could write for days. #pinstripes#pinstripesbbb#chicagochocolatefountain@chicagochocolatefountain#work#graduated#style#fashion#lights#boots#red#blonde#goinout#blessings#nclex#studying#off

Today i release myself from any and all judgement. i find my inner critic, call it into my office and tell it to take a hike! as it leaves the room, i let out a sign and begin to enjoy the joy of simply being. ( i mean seriously, who hired that guy/gal)
remind yourself: i am human. i am imperfect. i am worthy of existence free from harsh judgements and negative self talk. i am doing my best. i am progressing. i am growing 🖤🌈

The windows of heaven are open, the blessings are falling tonight! there’s joy, joy, joy in my heart when jesus made everything right. i gave him my old tattered garment; he gave me a robe of pure white. i’m feasting on manna from heaven, and that’s why i’m so happy tonight” this chorus reminds us that when we trade our life of sin for a life of holiness, god will fill us with great joy and his blessings will overflow #houseofpraise#gospeltabernacleofthekingdom#blessings#joy#holiness#watchnightservice#newyearseve
Morning bits. breakfast with ruth, scrambled eggs, english muffin, hot tea. wet ne sandy blvd. waiting at the bus shelter right across the street from my beloved @bluediamondpdx. i had a few minutes before the bus, so i walked up to see what that man had done when he got out of the pick-up truck with the flashing yellow light. he made this sign stand up; i have no idea what’s going to happen west of that sign that necessitates its placement a quarter of a block from an intersection with traffic signals. i hope nothing is about to be dug up along there. next there is a bit of video with audio, so if you want to hear what i assume to be a homeless, mentally ill man has to say as he walks along between the building and the curb, turn up your volume. all of us who waited for the our bus knew we needed to be aware of our surroundings; this is just one of the reasons you have to be vigilant when you’re anywhere these days. he kept going south, his voice trailing off in the distance. nevertheless, when the 8 bus arrived, i realized everyone at the stop boarded, so i got on as well because i could not be certain if the hollering man might return. i caught my last bus of the morning commute with nobody nearby hollering anything, but as you can see on the two screenshots it was cold out there! once i got to work and made my hot tea, i counted blessings all over the place! #72yearsold#cancersurvivor#oldladybouldering#livingmybestlife#72yearsyoung#whome#breakfast#morningcommute#mentalillness#homeless#safety#rainy#cold#happyfriyay#friyay#blessings#scrambledeggs#hottea#englishmuffin#hollering#everydayimsparklin

A lot to say, a lot on my mind. breath taking to have views like this throughout the world. clear skies after some rain. fresh air, nice cool breeze, beautiful sunrise.
as i look down the city of angels can’t help to think that we truly live in a great city. yeah i know there’s a lot of noise. i know there’s a lot of b.s., but truly here in l.a., we get a little of everything, black, brown, white and everything in between. different cultures different ideas different beliefs. we have communities like la plácita olvera, little tokyo, little italy, little armenia, chinatown, crenshaw, hollywood, beverly hills, santa monica, our mountains, our beaches and everything in between. we can almost be our own country.
we may not always meet eye to eye but we all come together through sports, music, art, food, friendship, partnership, work, love. one common goal we have, we are all in the pursuit of happiness.
change is constant it will never stop.
time will keep on ticking, it doesn’t stop for anyone.
learn to adapt, promote good and peace. everyday that you are given, is an opportunity to help make a difference with someone. you alone posses something that no one else has, you! you alone are a gift to this world.
Inspiration comes from many places! one of my most influential inspiritors is my great friend will! when faced with adversity some people ask what would jesus do? i ask, what would will do and just the thought of him pushes me, driving me up the ladder! i improvise, adapt and overcome at all cost! when you see a man fighting for his life in a battle with (f*ck)cancer and do so with an unwavering spirit all your so called big problems suddenly become insignificant! find your inspiration. be all you can be and never give up!!! #iwill#rerestrong#amystrength ✊🏾
